Paul Fought The Law!

On this date in U2 history.

August 24, 1993: Concert: Cork, Ireland

Prior to a show in Cork, Ireland, a local governing body bans the sale of U2 condoms at the concert. Manager Paul McGuinness reacts by handing out condoms personally to fans at the show, prompting criticism from the city's mayor

I never knew Paul was such a wild guy

The band also paid the fine around that time for a Dublin Virgin Megastore that was selling condoms. The store got in trouble because only pharmacies were supposed to sell condoms.
